Osap Applicaiton on Hold?!
Hey guys. I checked my Osap status, and it says its on hold. I did my online application late june and mailed in my papers more than 2 weeks ago. In the past 2 weeks, nothing has changed under the "to do list." Does it take this long?

Also, im going into engineering. When I was completing my osap application, I had to pick a program. There wasn't "Engineering I" or "Engineering 1" in the options, so I just chose Electrical Engineering cuz thats what I applied for on OUAC. Im not sure if that will cause a problem or not. What do you guys think? Will it be ok, or did I mess up bad?

It usually take about this long. I would contact SFAS and inquire them on how to switch your program on your OSAP application to engineering I because it does make a difference. McMaster has you registered as a student in that program. When OSAP tries to verify that you are in electrical engineering they will find out that you are not. Also, all costs and tuition that McMaster reports to OSAP is based on your program.
